The Phillies haven’t gotten much production from the bench all season. But Domonic Brown isn’t your ordinary bench player. He helped propel the Phils to a 6-4 win over the Mets on Friday night.
With the Phillies trailing 3-2, late in the game, Brown led off the inning with a single to center field.
Jimmy Rollins followed with a double scoring Brown to tie the game.
In the 9th, Brown struck again with an RBI single to score Carlos Ruiz giving the Phillies a 4-3 lead. Despite only playing two innings, Brown went 2-for-2 and scored two runs in addition to his RBI knock.
The Phillies added two more runs in the inning on RBI sacrifice fly by Rollins and a single by Placido Polanco.
Roy Oswalt had a solid start and pitched six innings giving up two runs on nine hits with two strike outs. He has given up only three runs in his last two starts.
Ruiz went one-for-three with two runs scored and a walk in the win. Rollins was two-for-four with three RBIs.
The Phillies will send Cole Hamels to the mound against the Mets tomorrow.
2B: Rollins (10).
WP: Bastardo (3-0). LP: Rodriguez (1-1). S: Madson (10).
